Year 5 and 6

Welcome back, Hawthorns!

Year 5&6 2020

It’s the start of a brand-new academic year and with all the uncertainty of the last few months, we, here at Our Lady’s, could not be more excited about the prospect of welcoming the children back into our school. There’s a fun filled and action-packed first half-term ahead, of that you can be sure! We’ll be working hard to re-acclimatise the children to school-based learning as quickly and smoothly as possible, while also challenging them to achieve their full potential. In Hawthorn class, not only are we tightly focused on pursuing a broad and balanced curriculum, we are also very serious about developing the children’s personal transferable skills, which will stand them in good stead for the future. If you have any questions regarding any aspect of life in Hawthorn class, please do not hesitate to ask. Here’s to a fantastic year ahead!

The Mysterious Maya 


This half term, we will be delving into the world of the Maya Civilisation. After analysing where and when these mysterious people lived, we’ll examine what life was like in the Maya culture. We’ll touch on aspects of their lifestyle such as religion, maths, farming, art, festivals, writing, trade and technology. How were these people able to achieve such incredible things, create such awe-inspiring architecture and then seemingly disappear?
